About Is Psychology Making Us Sick?

This blog “talks back” to a century of normative psychology, an approach that often has more to do with socialization than well-being. It presents a love-based psychology that:

  • Embraces authenticity instead of suggesting “fixes”
  • Views deviations from “the norm” as reflections of nature’s diversity
  • Believes in the power and intelligence of feelings
  • Recognizes the larger culture’s role in individual suffering
  • Sees conflict as necessary for building sustainable relationships
  • Regards our greatest difficulties as our strongest allies
